Altered Book Sculptures are delivered as 2nd Class Signed For.
This recycled book has been altered through cutting away parts of the books and constructing new structures from the discarded book pages. It can be displayed and viewed on a book shelf and have the addition of secret scenes on opening the book up.
The intention of using old books for me is to breathe new life into old & disused literature.
This Altered Book is inspired by Butterflies and Daisies: Many butterflies are declining due to climate change. They are great pollinators and as such also have an important role in our planets future. This year due really to the pandemic our grass verges haven't been cut as much as usual. This has been welcomed. So many grass verges are now being left to nature showing the enjoyment as well as the importance wildflowers bring. Daisies peeking through the grass usually indicates its time to mow the lawn but in this scene they are growing tall with butterflies enjoying them.
